This site was created BY those impacted by the Recession FOR those impacted by the Recession.
The sole purpose of this site is to make sure you know how to find a job in today's economy. The job search process and the tools available have changed dramatically since the last time most of those currently looking for work had to find a job.
Times and the Process Have Changed
There are so many people applying for every position, you have to be able to stand out from the crowd! And, while we can't end the recession - we can help you stand out from the crowd!
You now have 15 - 30 SECONDS to sell yourself!!!
Yes. Your resume has less than 30 secondsto impress a recruiter and make you stand out from the crowd. And, in those few seconds, it must convince the reader that you are one of the 5 or so people who deserve an interview. Do you really know how to make that happen???
Unless you can can...
- Write a Resume that will 'market' you - and, make you stand out from the crowd in 15 seconds; AND,
- Identify possible employers; AND ,
- Identify open jobs - that are not advertised; AND,
- Get the Interview; AND,
- Use Networking effectively to reach out to people who can help.
We also provide resources to help you survive being unemployed - including links to government assistance and ways to save money on the things you need.
